With the vastly improved cinema-like impact that the soundbar and subwoofer bring, this film and the other version both come to life with the extensive action in both. Having both in our growing collection of Avenger super hero/super heroine movies completes the set, so far. Both Hulk films belong there and continue to entertain us. Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Nick Nolte, Sam Elliott, Josh Lucas, and the rest of the cast are all very good at bringing their characters to life in this comic book romp with excellent special effects and action.
I initially felt it was too long and occasionally slowed too much and jumped back and forth too much between past and present. However, those early objections of mine have waned the more I have watched Hulk and come to have a growing appreciation for its ability to simply entertain me.
This film goes a long way to tell the story of Bruce Banner and how he became Hulk, with a little insidious help from misguided scientific research colliding with accidental misfortune. The sequences when Hulk ignites to further uncontrolled violence tend to make one cringe and more fully appreciate the meaning and consequences of "Hulk smash," and why in the future everyone, including most of the other Avengers tend to walk on eggshells around him in order not to ever tick him off at them.
Great fun. I highly recommend this one, if you can just pop some popcorn, sit back, and let it entertain you on its own terms and with its own timeline.
First major change, Bruce no longer develops the gamma bomb for the military. I guess the writers thought it would be too difficult to build sympathy for a character who spends his days building bigger and better ways to slaughter thousands of people. Now Bruce's metamorphosis is triggered by a combination of experiments performed on him as a child by his scientist father, and a lab accident. While this may sidestep the whole issue of building sympathy for a weapons designer, we lose that overriding, powerful image of the Hulk being born at the heart of a nuclear bomb blast.
In the comics, Bruce's father was even more of a monster than in the movie. Bruce Banner was a seriously abused child - we're talking his entire childhood was a living hell of physical/emotional abuse, and watching the same delivered upon his mother. In the movie, though the father experiments upon his son, and eventually, accidentally kills his wife, versus Bruce's comics father - who beat his wife to death, and it was NOT an accident - he's comparatively decent.
Of course, that doesn't make him a nice guy. Nick Nolte was an inspired choice to play the father. Even his good guys are psycho a-holes. Give him a character who's a psycho a-hole to start with and he really goes to town.Read more ›

Worst movie I've seen. Nick Nolte's performance was horrible, and 90% of the movie is dialog. My kids even hated it and they love anything that gets them tv time. Just terrible.Published 16 hours ago by Matrix Driver
